Systematic X-ray diffraction study of the crystal structures of 1,3-dialkylimidazole-based
ionic liquids containing the Br– anion was performed. Analysis of the influence of the nature of
the cation on the formation of a hydrogen bond system and the supramolecular arrangement of
ions demonstrated that not only CH...Br contacts but also anion-π-system and CH-π-system
interactions exist in the crystalline state. Conclusions were drawn on the character of changes
in the melting point in a series of bromide ionic liquids containing the imidazolium cation.
